Firewall on clients' machines?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I have 3 computers at my house connect to the internet through 1 computer using Internet Sharing Service. The computer which connects to the internet has a firewall on its own. So do I need to install the firewall on the rest of the computers?

Just because you have one system that has a firewall doesn't mean that the others don't need it....
You may have a particular PC that you are used to accessing the net with...right?!
Then the hardest security needs to be there...(trojan scanners, virus scanners, etc)
Try to use the same firewall on all...configuring it will be less harsh as you will be using the same interface to set them up!!!

Ok, but here's the problem. When I enable/install a firewall on the client computer, it doesn't regconize the internet connection but the LAN interface only. Therefore, it puts restrict on files sharing, and other communication services between lan computers become unavailable. I wouldn't want to lift it because then it does not protecting as it's supposed to anymore. The internet still works through the firewall but windows were acting up.

using the proxy 4 dial up is just the same...you can share files faster than downloading them...right?
Configure 2 PCs then add the 3rd...and remember the settings that you used to connect the 1st two...lanparties were always fun for me because we spent the first few hours trying to get my PC on the network!!

I've set up a few ICS networks with a software firewall on the main machine......as long as the network cards are not bridged then I havent had a problem....the main machine acts as a router.
